The Taj Cape Town in St George's Mall has announced it will now manage the adjacent ABC Bank building as a 400-pax conference and events venue.
The 330m² on the ground floor of the former banking hall hosts up to 400 guests for a cocktail reception and 230 for banqueting. Three hundred delegates can be seated cinema-style while 200 can be accommodated in a classroom configuration.
Mint, the company's dining option, is immediately adjacent and has begun drawing a strong business lunch and walk-in, adding to St George's Mall's attractions .
GM Michael Pownall said, "We are proud of the latest addition to Taj Cape Town's function and event amenities, which complement our existing banquet and corporate venue on the first floor of the refurbished BOE Building with large sash windows that look out onto St George's Cathedral. The ABC Branch, with green and sky rose marble clad walls that run up into vaulted ceilings twelve metres high, offers an old world grandeur that will lend a sense of occasion to any event hosted within this heritage listed building."
